The other day I googled “Plantations for Sale,” just to see what kind of farms are in the South – do they still look like they did a hundred years ago, or what I’d imagine that to be? Plantation Services was one of the first to pop up…and after a few clicks I found this 3030 acre property, pictured above. The grounds include a “main house, guest houses, manager’s house, airstrip and hanger, kennels, stables, and equipment sheds.” Is that gorgeous or what? I love the Spanish moss, the house (the windows, the brick, the shingled additions…just everything). I also love the guest houses.
Because 3/4 of the property is under a conservation easement, the buyer pool shifts from someone looking for an investment to someone looking for a $22,000,000 vacation home. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing – the easement facilitates the habitation of endangered birds, fish & wildlife.
